Sketch-It

Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Corner of Milton Street and Irwin Street.

Some years ago now, this heritage house was moved a few blocks to become a prominent display, kitty corner from Deverill Square Park. The exterior was renovated and still looks brand new.

I tried out a new Lamy fountain pen with a medium tip on hot pressed watercolour paper. The pen has a piston type reservoir that I filled up with Noodlers waterproof ink.

The pen glides nicely over the paper surface in any direction and produces a crispy black line. As is to be expected, it is less useful on cold pressed paper.
